Course Information for Grade 9s

Over the past two days we have hosted representatives from Gonzaga High School, who spoke with our Grade 9s about course selection for the 2018-19 school year. They were all given course selection sheets and asked to take them home for discussion about their plans for high school. These forms all have to be returned to their homeroom teachers no later than February 2nd.

Tonight at 7pm, Gonzaga is holding a parent information session if you have any questions, or would like to meet with the high school advisors. This meeting will be at Gonzaga High School.

If you would like more information, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development have a Guide to Course Selection that is free to download. Click here to download it.

In addition, Gonzaga have kindly provided us with a worksheet to assist in three-year planning for course selection. Click here to download it.
